CBABC Aboriginal Lawyers Forum
The Aboriginal Lawyers Forum is a networking and mentoring forum for law students, law graduates and lawyers. The key objectives are providing networking opportunities, facilitating Indigenous leadership and mentoring, and facilitating opportunities to celebrate our Indigenous cultures.
As the ALF has grown over the past years, work has expanded to advocate and be a voice for Indigenous lawyers, students and clients, to facilitate and support reconciliation efforts within our profession, and to promote a greater inclusion of Indigenous people in all areas.
